The IETM, one of the largest global umbrella performing arts organisations, with over 450 member organisations in more than 50 countries, will hold its plenary session this year in Rijeka (Croatia) from 24 to 27 October 2019, as part of the Rijeka 2020 European Capital of Culture project.
At the meeting on Thursday, July 18, in the premises of RiHub, the Assembly of PartnerRi Business Club association unanimously selected six projects that are currently being implemented in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County in the fields of culture, arts and social innovations, that they will co-finance in the total amount of HRK 100,000. In April, PartneRi Business Club announced the first call for project funding with the aim of raising the quality of life in the local community and promoting socially responsible behaviour and cooperation with the community through investments in culture, art and social innovation, for which they received 37 applications.
In order to encourage citizens to come up with a project that would enhance the city with social-cultural and art campaigns, for which they would receive financial support, an Info Day was held at RiHub as part of the Participate! campaign.
The greening of the city centre, redevelopment of urban gardens, nurseries and a sensory garden with a composting plant or the beautification of the green roundabout are just some of the projects that were approved in the first round of the public call for submissions as part of the Green Wave project, which was presented to the citizens at the Info Day of the European Capital of Culture's Participate! campaign.
Every comprehensive and challenging project requires the inestimable value and additional strength of volunteers.
Another Participate campaign organised by the Rijeka 2020 - European Capital of Culture is underway, inviting citizens to transform their city, make decisions or volunteer.
The interior of RiHub, designed by Ana Boljar and Ida Križaj Leko, has been nominated for the Croatian Architects' Association annual Bernardo Bernardi Award.
